Publication List

Microscopy Otago contributes to many publications throughout the University of Otago. Sometimes the contribution is small and at other times it is a major factor in the success of the investigation. In many cases the expertise of the staff is called upon and we thank those authors who have acknowledged this contribution. If you would like to acknowledge the OCEM or OCCM in your publications, please consider using the following statement:

Acknowledging Statement: The authors acknowledge the facilities as well as scientific and technical assistance from staff at the Otago Centre for Electron Microscopy (OCEM) and/or the Otago Centre for Confocal Microscopy (OCCM) at the University of Otago.

The following is a confirmed list taken from the Research Master database which is maintained by the University of Otago, however this should be seen as a conservative list. Publications are ultimately the justification of the Centre's existence. Without your lists of publications it is much harder to argue for improvements to equipment and staff opportunities. Please send us references which have contributions obtained at the Centre by emailing them to Allan.mitchell@anatomy.otago.ac.nz or Sharon.lequeux@anatomy.otago.ac.nz.
